Water Pipes

We've lived in this house 16 years and lately a loud noise has started coming from the water pipes. It doesn't happen every time the water is turned on - just sometimes. The worst and loudest groan comes when the outdoor faucet on one end of the house is turned on. Next is when the dishwasher is running, that's opposite side of the house. What would cause this?
